Workshop: Scientific Exploration of the Arctic and North Pacific (Deadline to apply: June 17, 2018)

Dear Colleagues,

The deadline to apply for this ocean drilling workshop is 4 days away:

Scientific Exploration of the Arctic and North Pacific (SEA-NorP)
September 25-27, 2018; Timberline Lodge, Mt. Hood, Oregon, USA

At the workshop, we will develop proposals for scientific ocean drilling in the Northern Pacific, Bering Sea and Western Arctic Ocean region, including GeoPRISMS primary site, the Alaska-Aleutian subduction zone. The drilling platform, JOIDES Resolution, is scheduled to operate in the Pacific in 2023. To ensure that the ship is used to best advantage, now is the time to develop proposals that could be linked through regional drilling strategies.

Our goal is to initiate multiple proposals around GeoPRISMS-related themes such as geohazards and volatile cycling, as well as other themes including ocean gateways, ice histories at transition zones, biosphere and climate.

The workshop is open to U.S. and international participants. The deadline to apply is June 17, 2018. Travel grants are available thanks to funding from USSSP-IODP, the National Science Foundation and ECORD. Graduate students, early career scientists and those new to IODP are encouraged to apply.

Draft agenda attached. For more information and to apply, visit the workshop website:
